If you cheap out on alkaline batteries, there’s a noticeable difference in performance. But that might not be the case with rechargeable nickel-metal hydride batteries made in Japan. As Matthew Eargle discovered, the cheap LADDA rechargeables that Ikea sells might actually be rolling off the same production line as…
The Sony spin-off Vaio has announced that it plans to merge with the computer divisions of its rivals Toshiba and Fujitsu as early as next month to form a Japanese “PC giant.”
Are you worried about the classic hot smartphone problem? Into overclocking your pocket PC? If you are, you'll be thrilled about Fujitsu's new technology for a liquid-cooled smartphone. It's a bit like putting your car's radiator into your phone—a cool idea even if you probably wouldn't need it.
Computer scientists at Fujitsu Labs have launched the "Todai Robot Project," an effort to get a robot to pass the University of Tokyo's very tough entrance exam — and they're hoping to do it in eight years.
There are endless metrics a store has access to when it comes to when, what, and who is buying merchandise. But surprisingly, there's not a heck of a lot of data on why a customer decides not to buy something. So Fujitsu is hoping its new Kinect-based research tool provides more insight into how customers browse, and…
Realizing that the oft-promised 'paperless office' may never actually come to fruition, researchers at Fujitsu are working on a backup plan that gives printed documents similar tablet-like touchscreen functionality.
Relying on your tablet's on-screen keyboard saves you from having to carry clunky accessories, but it also gobbles up a good chunk of usable screen real estate. So Fujitsu researchers are working on a happy medium that uses the tablet's camera to track your finger movements on a desk, as if you were typing away on an…
The idea of an interactive TV experience where additional information about a show or a product could be simultaneously accessed on another device has been tossed around for a while. But Fujitsu's new subliminal transmission technology might finally make it an easy and unobtrusive reality.
When transparent LCD technology started popping up as consumer tech prototypes a few years ago, it was quickly dismissed as gimmick, or something for a marketing kiosk. But looking at this touchscreen concept from Fujitsu—which is double-sided and transparent—makes you wonder if there isn't hope for this tech yet.
Fujitsu's Arrow's μ smartphone, which is newly available in Japan, is the slimmest phone to ever receive FCC approval, which means that once Fujitsu sets itself up with a US Carrier, it could be yours.
By the end of this year you could be playing with a quad-core Android phone courtesy of Fujitsu. We just saw the company's newest prototype. It's fast, but what would you do with all of that power?
Everything should be waterproof. Especially phones, because you know how you love to poop and talk. You can thankfully drop Fujitsu's new line of waterproof Android phones and tablets in the crapper without ruining them.
The K supercomputer just got a bit quicker—boosting its computational output to 10.5 quadrillion calculations per second and making it the speediest number-crunching system on the planet.
This approachable perspex box is a section of the Fujitsu K. Despite looking like it should be selling Mars bars, cans of Coke, condoms and toothbrushes to businessmen, this cabinet makes up part of the current "world's fastest supercomputer."
Here's something that shouldn't exist: the Fujitsu F-07C smartphone, which is really not smart at all, as it runs a full version of Windows 7. Not Windows Phone 7. Windows 7. On a 4-inch screen. Can this be reversed?
Oh, so Big Jim at the nursing home thinks he's all that, with his cane that doubles up as an umbrella? Egle Ugintaite's cane concept walks all over that, and then some. Sensors actually take readings from the user's wrist, and track the pulse, blood pressure and body temperature, displaying the stats on the little LCD…
Shut up and sit down, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Tianjin National Supercomputing Center: you've just had your petaflops handed to you by Japan's Riken Advanced Institute for Computational Science, whose K Computer is the #1 in the world.
You know phones? Those functional communication and content-deliver devices that we carry around in our wallets and purses and use our mouths to speak into and fingers to poke at? You know what they need? A fragrance chip. To smell pretty. Apparently.
Look, this Fujitsu hybrid notebook/tablet is years and years away from existing. And by then, will we use the notebook form factor at all? Who knows, but I love this flexible, folding screen, which doesn't have a distracting middle hinge.
I can't remember the last time I put a disc in my laptop. Maybe an old mix CD. The world's moving on from physical media! Great! But how about replacing that slot with something useful, and not a pico projector?
